Hi Fred and Lora,

Just wanted you to know that Mom's platelet count went up from 46 to 110 in 2 weeks. What an improvement!!! Her red blood cells are no longer dropping. For the past 2 weeks, the count held at 2.70. Many of the other levels, i.e., sodium, calcium , potassium , etc., are in the normal range.

However, ALk. Phos jump 16 points. Should we be concern? We'll get her Lambda Free Light chain numbers next week. I hope they are also down. The doctor wants to start her on Valcade in 3 weeks.
